LA BAULA LODGE
The Lodge is situated in one of the most beautiful and exotic places in the world, the Tortuguero National Park, located on Costa Rica’s northeast Atlantic coast.
This magical spot is one of the most privileged places in the world for eco-tourism and is in a setting of incredible biodiversity of plant and animal life. Las Baulas Lodge has 54 large comfortable rooms decorated with a Caribbean flair. The overall architecture of the lodge is typical of the Caribbean zone and lends to the ambiance of the lodge.
A navigable network of lakes and channels crosses Tortuguero from the southeast to the northwest. This allows the great diversity of fauna and flora of the region to be seen firsthand. Tortuguero is one of the most important nesting sites in the western half of the Caribbean for the Green Turtle.
The Green Turtle is a medium size turtle with long fins that grows to one meter in length and can weigh from 75 to 200 kg. Tortuguero National Park is one of the world’s most magical places and our Jungle Lodge has been providing accommodation to those that wish to visit this area for over seventeen years.
North of Tortuguero National Park is the smaller Dr. Archie Carr Wildlife Refuge and then the Barra del Colorado Wildlife Refuge. The latter refuge contains habitats similar to those found in Tortuguero National Park, although much of that refuge is even less accessible. To the south the park is bordered by the Parismina River and the Cariari National Wetlands. The park has worked with the neighboring village of Tortuguero to help its inhabitants understand that preserving their natural resources is the key to burgeoning eco-tourism.
